Feb 24th Heaven and Earth Designs Online Newsletter
Hi Everyone~ It has been quite a long time since I posted a newsletter and there has been alot going on with HAED recently and we wanted to share in the exciting news.
First of all, we have been working diligently on a new line of designs that are Christmas stockings and we will be featuring the Christmas artwork of Donna Gelsinger, Scott Gustafson, Ruth Sanderson and several others. These designs will be in the shape of a stocking and will feature some of our most popular Christmas designs. The average size of these stockings will be approximately 16 inches long and 13 inches wide. We are currently working on a group of 6 and should have the first releases out by May/June 09. Stay tuned for some sneak peeks as we get more of the charting completed.
In April, we will be featuring the artwork of Lisa Steinke and wait until you see her new artwork, gorgeous! This program allows you the stitcher to understand a little more about what goes on behind the scenes of the artist and what inspires them etc.
We will also be setting chat sessions that are limited to 25 people but there will be 4 sessions to that everyone has an opportunity to join in and so that we can meet the needs of everyone globally. We have tried this in the past with some success and there will be some very clear guidelines posted to help things run a little smoother.
Some exciting new releases are in the works and first up is 2 new Kinuko Craft designs (The Bell at Sealy Head and Scent of Magic) which are scheduled for release mid March and mid April. Jane Wooster Scott is next up with quite a few that we are working on as well.
Some of you have been wondering about the future releases of the Filigree series and we will be releasing Dutch Filigree by February 27th 2009 and then shortly after that will be Grecian Filigree and we are very excited about these new releases. Michele has been charting Dutch pretty much non stop the past week or so.
We are also working on new Peek-A-Boo’s and Tiny Treasures and that pretty much fills up our plates.
We hope that everyone is staying warm and we are indeed looking forward to the warming of the air and color green after these long Winter Months.
Happy stitching to all, Michele, Bob, Tom and Jessica
